Against the background of Ukrainian instability in 2013/2014, this RAD issue examines the status and future of the Eurasian Union integration project. The first article argues that Moscow’s efforts to persuade Kiev to join the Union have always been overtly instrumental -- i.e., its goal is to keep Ukraine well within Russia’s sphere of influence. The second article looks at the increasing 'regionalization' of world politics and how it might impact the Eurasian Union’s future trajectory. The third article assesses Belarus' perspective of the Union, while the fourth one examines Kazakhstan’s position towards it.
